  • 「Samba」はブラジルで活躍する競走馬。本写真集は、スポーツ写真集でもなければ、時系列に写真を配した記録写真でもなく、あくまで主役を「Samba」に於いたポートレート写真集です。馬を主軸においた、人とのつながりや営みの記録。その眼差しや姿勢、思いなども伝わってくるような良い写真を収めた、ぬくもりのある写真集。2015年ドイツ写真集賞ノミネート作品。

    »With her photo project „Samba Brazil Love“ Britta Strohschen has immersed herself in the world of horse racing. The motivational crux of her photographic work is examining the fascinating relationship between human beings and animals, from tender attraction and symbiotic energy, to utter dependence and the efficient exercise of power.
    Her interest in the horse racing universe, with its highly complex interaction of myths, is not to tell a journalistic story or present a classical documentary. In the image flow of various aspects of the sport, from the stall to the winner’s cup, from fashionable women’s headwear and proud jockeys, from betting slips to borderline physical exertion, she has succeeded in piecing together a variegated visual sequence like a puzzle. The dramaturgy of the photographs displays neither a linear nor chronological ordering principle.

    Instead the layout encourages the viewer to succumb to a completely different rhythm. By changing pace constantly, snap-shots of concentration are juxtaposed to the dynamic of human beings and horses at the boundaries of the action. The photography is in a position to lend the objects in the pictures their own language. With a fragmentary glimpse divorced from any causal relationships, they develop a very strong aesthetic presence.
